Portugal Vibes | Parte Dois

After sharing about past trips to Portugal in yesterday's post, I think it's time to fill you all in on this year's trip.

Victor, Max, and I returned earlier this week from a 12-day visit to Fuseta, Portugal.  Fuseta is a cute little fishing town on the southern coast of Portugal.  There's an abundance of fresh seafood there, as well as cute cafes, pristine beaches, and clear blue skies every day.

We went to the beach several times on this trip, only this time, we always went between the hours of 9 AM and 11 AM, thanks to our fair-skinned babe.  I'm happy to report that no sunburns were acquired on this trip as a result of this practice.

We ate lots of fresh, grilled fish and meats.  We enjoyed fresh bread baked daily.  We didn't watch any TV.  I read a book.  We went to a wedding.  We relaxed.  We visited with family.

Max LOVED Portugal.  He had a tough time adjusting to the 5-hour time difference at the beginning, but luckily he was happy despite his poor sleep for a few days.

Here are some photos from our trip.

Max decided he liked sunglasses in Portugal.

We only went to the Ilha one day.  Max didn't like the waves there.
